    Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale Zagato 2010-2013

    AutoCAR says it has got american 4,2-liter V8

    Zagato unveils TZ3 Stradale - Autocar.co.uk


    Despite its Alfa looks, the special edition Stradale is based on a Dodge Viper ACR, with power sourced from the Americanís 4.2-litre V8 engine, which is mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox.

    So why is Alfa using an American engine and chassis when they can so easily get one from Ferrari?

    Seems weird.

    Well, these days they could get a Viper just as easily...

    That's not the point! I can easily cut off the mufflers on a Civic or put on a fartcan, it doesn't make it better. It feels unholy to me for some odd reason.

    So which one (from the last 2 photos) in Ecnelis' post is the Viper? I'm thinking the car to the right on the last photo.

    So what's the other car based on?

    Perhaps some obscure website could provide you with an answer...

    It's the last year's one-off TZ3 Corsa bades on 8C Competizione, and it's the car to the right (to the left if Viper-based TZ3 Stradale).

    Wrong, last year's car was based on the Gillet Vertigo, NOT communicated by Zagato. There was not a single Alfa component in the whole car.

    I'd add that it was using a Maserati V8 just becase the Vertigo uses one.
    Incidentally, if it was an older model it would have had an Alfa engine.

    I even took a picture of the VIN to get an evidence of the Belgian-ness of this car.

    Autoblog definitely state it's the V10 from the ACR in there.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.
